    Hi there

    I would like to be able to have Stockcharts or other charting program open and go through a list of ticker symbols.
    I have a "hotlist" I check regularly in a little textedit window which just takes up the corner of the screen. Trouble is when I enter a ticker into stockcharts, the textedit window gets knocked to the back and i have to use expose to show all windows then pick textedit again to look at my next ticker. It's just a slightly annoying timewaste.

    Is there an elegant way to leave a list right at the front of everything no matter if I click on another window?

    thanx v much

    You can try Afloat ( and see if it meets your needs. [According to at least one review, some programs (windows) are not supported, but it should work fine for TextEdit].
